Panel Discussion

PARENT’s Background PARENT stands to build Positive Affective Resolutions for Effective Nurturing Trust. The PARENT Module focuses on the bi-directional Cognitive-Behaviour strategies in Parent-Child interaction and communication. This module addresses parental behaviour focusing on reducing parental stress and behaviours driven by emotions of fear and anxiety, and increasing parental satisfaction. PARENT is a community-based program that targets immigrants/ new-comers and refugees to be more individual-and-family-mental health-informed focusing on actual psychological growth in post-immigration while meeting expectations of cross-cultural family dynamics and family relationships. PARENT Module’s Objectives ü Improving mental health: Support community members who are vulnerable to develop mental health problems to stay well. Empowering choice: Empower people who experience a mental health problem to make informed choices about how they live and recover. ü Improving services and support: Ensure that community members have access to the right services and support at the right time to aid their recovery and enable them to live with their mental health problems. ü Enabling social participation: Create a safe space for community members with experience of mental health problems to participate fully in their society. Our intervention creates change makers by recruiting and training adults from local communities to provide inclusive and equitable quality of psycho-social education for low-income families along with promoting long-term effective learning opportunities for all. ü Achieving gender equality and empowerment of women and girls in cross-cultural agglomerations by emphasizing roles and responsibilities of family members, promoting paternal involvement.
